in time all america can really do is ask for restraint on both sides. certainly keep our fingers crossed that the bloodshed will end and that the military will respect human rights. >> if we wait and we keep our fingers crossed and we ask for restraint, u.s. officials as we understand until the very last minute before this crackdown were reaching out to their counterparts in egypt asking for that very restraint but they were ignored. so do we have an influence? keeping fingers crossed doesn't seem like it is going to cut it anymore. >> no, it's tragic we don't have greater influence. about the only thing we have right now is the threat of cutting out military aid. quite honestly, a number of us in the senate were willing to give the president the flexibility prior to the august recess. when we come back in september if events don't improve dramatically, i don't think there is going to be any choice than to basically force the hand of this administration and cut off military aid to egypt. >> should he have made that call today? should hathat have been the decision now? >> first, i don't t
